Skyrocketing interest in crossbow hunting has created tremendous demand from new crossbow hunters. Meanwhile, discriminating veterans are looking for features like sleeker, lighter, faster, more maneuverable and more powerful bows.
As a result, crossbow manufacturers are increasingly challenged with providing an adequate supply of all of the above. Time will tell if they can make enough bows, but if this year’s selection is any indication, they certainly seem to be on track in terms of technology. Check out our roundup of the best crossbows right now.
- The Inferno Firestorm II’s compression molded limbs, CNC-machined aluminum cam system and aircraft-grade risers will shoot a blazing 375 feet per second. And that is accomplished with an easy draw weight of only 165 pounds and an ultra-light trigger needing only 2.4 pounds of pull. The Next Vista Soft Touch Microprint Camouflage adds comfort, grip and style, and like all Inferno crossbows, the Firestorm II comes packed with standard features like a 4x32 illuminated (red and green) scope, padded shoulder sling, four 20-inch carbon bolts with 100-grain practice points, rope cocking device, quick-detach quiver, open sight and even safety goggles. Price: $535
